LUXEMBOURG - Lithuania has recently received the last batch of a multiyear order of Spike LR anti-tank missiles from Eurospike GmbH. The contract was established and managed by the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) in cooperation with the Organisation for Joint Armament Co-operation (OCCAR) that executed the project on behalf of Lithuania.
The delivered missiles will be used for the new infantry fighting vehicles of the Lithuanian Armed Forces, a local variant of BOXER fighting vehicle, known as the Vilkas.
Over 15 NATO Allies already use the SPIKE LR or LR 2 systems, which are compatible with each other. This enables both interoperability and economies of scale among Allies, with joint stocks and logistics.
Through its Land Combat Missiles Support Partnership, NSPA supports Allies throughout the entire life cycle management of the weapon system, from the initial acquisition support, via production and in-service support to the phase-out and demilitarization stages.
